Three More Familiar Faces Rumored for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
We already know that Rogue One will be (occasionally) populated with familiar faces from the Star Wars universe, from Forest Whitaker's live-action version of Saw Gerrera to the return of Mon Mothma and, of course, Darth Vader himself. But according to a few new rumors, we'll see even more characters from the previous films (albeit minor ones):

The rumors originated from the BTS reel from Star Wars Celebration and, as is often the case, blurry and ambiguous screenshots. Slashfilm and some eagle-eyed fans noticed that one of the Rebel figures in the BTS reel looked very much like Bail Organa, Leia's adoptive father who was briefly seen in Revenge of the Sith and played by Jimmy Smits (and also appeared in Clone Wars and Rebels, voiced by a different actor). 


And according to Star Wars Post, we'll also get to see Dr. Cornelius Evazan (as well as his friend, Ponda Baba), the disfigured bar patron Luke runs into in the cantina. This would be a strange throwback to the original movies, unless it's an indication that Rogue One will have another cantina scene, as has been previously rumored.
